Learn what it takes to become an airline pilot with this one hour flight simulation experience in Leicestershire!
- Hinckley (Leicestershire)
- Gift Voucher valid for 1 Participant
This Flight Simulator Experience, in Leicestershire, offers you a glimpse of life as a pilot. Climb behind the controls of a Boeing 737 and enjoy an hour’s virtual flight – from take-off to landing – under the guidance of a fully-qualified pro!
Upon arrival, you’ll meet your instructor and sit down for a chat – over a cuppa – during which you’ll be briefed on what to expect inside the simulator. Your tuition will then continue on the flight deck, before the controls are handed over to you and your 60 minutes of fly-time begin. Thoroughly prepared, you’ll now be responsible for every stage of the flight – starting with a smooth take-off and landing at your choice of well-known airports. Your instructor will act as your attentive co-pilot throughout as you get to grips with the aircraft – offering support and further instruction wherever necessary. Even complete novices will be able to master the controls and those feeling confident can tackle a tricky landing like Innsbruck’s mountainous approach. Back on the tarmac, you’ll debrief and have an opportunity to take photos – meanwhile already planning a new career move!
The 60-minute Flight Simulator experience, in Leicestershire, can be enjoyed by those as young as 10 and will delight anyone with an interest in aviation. A voucher would make a unique gift for the budding pilot in your life.
The simulator runs year round from 9am to 8pm, subject to availability.
Weekends in 2018 are now booked until late August.
